Magento Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony Magento Connector establishes access to Magento.

The Magento connector provides an interface for creating a Magento connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Magento activities. These activities, once configured, interact with Magento through the connection.

The Magento connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a Magento connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific Magento connection and its activities are referred to as a Magento endpoint:

Magento activity types

  • Search: Searches for items and retrieves them from Magento and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Put Bulk: Puts items in bulk into Magento and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Post: Posts an item into Magento and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Post Bulk: Posts items in bulk into Magento and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Get: Retrieves an item from Magento and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Delete Bulk: Deletes items in bulk from Magento and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Get Bulk Status: Retrieves the status of a bulk operation from Magento and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Delete: Deletes an item from Magento and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Put: Puts an item into Magento and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

Note

Verbose logging can be enabled for this connector when it is used with a Private Agent. See Verbose Logging for Connectors for details.

Invoke verbose logging for this connector using this configuration entry:

<logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.magento" level="DEBUG"/>

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The Magento connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The Magento connector uses the Magento 2 REST API. Refer to the API documentation for the version of Magento 2 that you are using for information on the schema nodes and fields.

Note

The available APIs depend on the user type (specified in the Magento connection) and the Magento version that you are using. Refer to the appropriate API documentation for details.
